On-Site Recycling

Salvage America recently headed a large deconstruct of farmland. The company has years of experience with on site consulting, deconstructing and removal of materials.


Many of today’s companies need assistance when facing deconstruction projects on small or large scales. Businesses need that expert knowledge to help them take advantage of the benefits that can come from recycling and recovering.



From the General Contractor to the Fortune 500 company, we always look for new materials to pull out of the waste stream.

At Salvage America our motto is "recycling one city at a time."  We believe in the environmental benefits of recycling, from the man on the street to the major corporation, we think that everyone can make a difference.  We work with materials of all types and we're always looking for new ways and materials  to recycle.


At Salvage America, we pride ourselves on being able to tackle all sorts of jobs; big or small. We provide a one-stop service with quick turnaround. Our services extend from general contractors to Fortune 500 companies; we can help commercial, industrial and residential customers. We pay highly competitive prices for all types of scrap metals such as: copper, brass, aluminum, electric motors, stainless steel, white goods, autos, and much more. Contact Salvage America for a list of specific types and quantities of recycled goods.

Salvage America was incorporated in 2004.  Founded by those who worked construction and witnessed first hand all the waste that was still usable on contruction jobs. After obtaining all permits, Salvage America began concentrating on recycling construction waste.
In 2008 the business was modified and expanded to buy separated materials rather than accept mixed construction waste. 
Since 2004 Salvage America has been operating as a recycling center that has been providing a quality "Green" service. We are a one stop service for all commercial, industrial and residential recycling needs, scrap metals and much more. We offer onsite consulting and analysis, certified scales to quantify recovery, container services, inventory liquidation, on-site deconstruction and material removal, as well as the resources to help businesses generate revenue for single stream waste recovery.
